Artificial muscles: technology mimicking the huge scale range of natural muscle
Wearable technologies provide a boost in mobility and rehabilitation
Soft robotics seeks to release robots from the constraints of hard materials such as metal and plastic and develop artificial muscles and organs more analogous to biological systems. A soft robot is much more like an artificial organism than a machine.
